As you arrive at Goldenhills Plantation, a ghost will attack you, after dealing with it you can collect the torn page next to the corpse of Urval. Head inside and go to the top floor to find Urval's journal which shows that Urval accused his wife of being a witch before attacking her, after which she appears to have poisoned him. The next step is to find her secret laboratory to uncover the truth, head down to the basement and look to the right as you enter, there is a button on the wall by the door, press it and the cupboard will move to reveal the secret lab.
Enter the laboratory and the ghost of Jonquil will appear and attack you, after dealing with her, read the journal on the apothecary table to discover the truth about what occurred at Goldenhills Plantation. After their son disappeared, Urval and Jonquil killed each other, Jonquil with extract of Deadly Nightshade, Urval with an axe each thinking that the other had murdered their son, Rin. To put their spirts to rest you need to discover what happened to Rin.
Head back upstairs to Rin's room, and look under his bed to find his journal which mentions that he was going to go to the old well to hunt a wolf. Leave the building and head south-east towards Giukar's Monument, as you are heading towards it, look to the left and you will see the old well surrounded by wolves. Once you have dispatched the wolves, take Rin's toy sword.
Take the toy sword into Rin's room and place it under the Imperial banner, the ghosts of Urval, Jonquil and Rin will appear behind you. Speak to Rin:
- Your family can rest in peace now.
- "Thanks a lot! Here. Take this. For all your hard work."
The key to the plantation will be placed in your inventory as a reward.
- Quest won't start if the wolves at the old well are killed or have not loaded in before fighting the ghost outside of the house.
- The ghosts of Rin and his parents may not show up after placing the toy sword in Rin's room. This appears to happen after you've completed the quest and then reload a save from before completing it. Restarting the game and then placing the toy sword should fix the issue.
- Quest won't start if follower or horse kills the ghost in the beginning
- Quest won't start if Urval's corpse does not appear on site. This happens if the innkeeper's dialog for this quest doesn't show up. The sure way of triggering this quest is to receive the note called Bounty - Restless Spirits from the innkeepers. Note: Urval's Ref ID is FExxxB75
